DIIV Use A Disorienting New Website To Share Their ‘Frog In Boiling Water’ Title Track


These days, a ton of music promo happens on social media, but DIIV is taking it back to good old-fashioned websites. Today, the band shared the title track from their upcoming album “Frog In Boiling Water” via their FIBW.org website.

It’s a weird and mysterious thing, filled with disorienting images and links that on the surface, don’t seem to make a ton of sense or be coherent. The group also shared a statement that reads in part, “The title track of DIIV’s new album Frog in Boiling Water is a snapshot from a world collapsing under its own weight. A cascade of atrocities wash over a population seemingly too stunned and powerless to act. Wealth is extracted and people suffer. The only obvious solution is [redacted text]. Visit FIBW.org for more info.”

The group previously said of their new album, “We understand the metaphor to be one about a slow, sick, and overwhelmingly banal collapse of society under end-stage capitalism, the brutal realities we’ve maybe come to accept as normal. That’s the boiling water and we are the frogs. The album is more or less a collection of snapshots from various angles of our modern condition which we think highlights what this collapse looks like and, more particularly, what it feels like.”
